"It has been my dream to provide Baradene students with a Makerspace – a dedicated space available to students to design and create physical and digital products using high tech equipment and technology - for assessment related projects across the entire curriculum and for the extracurricular projects such as Robotics, Young Enterprise and other inter school competitions. A Baradene Makerspace will give our students the opportunity to learn in a self-directed, hands-on way - to invent, experiment, innovate, collaborate, critically evaluate, problem solve, all the while developing resilience and perseverance through the process of testing, evaluating and modifying. A Baradene Makerspace will prepare our students to take their place in the modern world, equipped with the skills they need to succeed. We now have the Baradene Makerspace "space". However, we need your help to raise the funds to purchase the specialised equipment required. If you are able to, please support our first Baradene Giving Week so we can make the Baradene Makerspace dream a reality."
